Electrolux Dishwasher problems

HI,

I have the above dishwasher model # GLD2445RFC2

It has 2 recent problems.

1) There is water left in the bottom of the washer after the cycle has been completed

2) I'm getting a PF (power failure) flashing signal at the end of the cycle.

The dishes aren't entirely clean either.

Any help that you can offer me?

Thank you

It's fairly important that the drain line be fastened up high under the countertop for the unit to drain and operate properly. Your unit has a separate drain pump from the wash pump and that may have something getting stuck in it or a possible debris buildup.

I would start by removing the drain line and making sure it's not clogged.
I have to look up the PF issue as obviously you don't have a power failure.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick reply. I already took the drain tube apart and it hangs exactly like you have in the above sketch. Thinking there may be a (partial) clog in the drain pump, I blew air from a vacuum cleaner through the tube and I saw bubbles coming up from the bottom of the washer where the standing water is. Is there some sort of a drain one-way backup valve in the pump? Perhaps that's not working properly.

Yes there is a one way device. In your unit it's called a check ball and is #58 in the parts guide and in the diagram.

Sears is having a problem with their appliance parts server. May take several tries.

That may be the water problem, thanks. Any luck on the PF issue? Could these two problem be related somehow? Is it possible that the PF error stopped before the pump could do its job?

Remove the kickpanel from the bottom of the dishwasher. There will be a tech sheet in there, probably in a plastic bag. There will be a diagnostic routine you can run from the PF mode that should tell you what the problem is.
